Susan Torres gives birth

Susan Torres has given birth to a baby girl. The Northern Virginia woman has been brain-dead for months, but has been on life-support for the sake of her baby.
A cancer-ravaged woman robbed of consciousness by a stroke has given birth after being kept on life support for three months to give her fetus extra time to develop.

Susan Torres, whose plight has attracted support from around the world, gave birth to a daughter Tuesday by Caesarean section. The delivery went smoothly and the baby "is doing well," her brother-in-law, Justin Torres, wrote in an e-mail to The Associated Press. Susan Anne Catherine Torres weighs 1 pound, 13 ounces and is 13 1/2 inches long, he said.
Pray for the baby and the family, especially since now Susan will probably be taken off life support and allowed to die.
